Today in Music History

In 1956, Dick Clark debuted as host of Bandstand on Philadelphia TV station WFIL. Bandstand featured top pop and rock stars lip-synching their latest hits and a group of local teens dancing in the studio to recorded music. The ABC network expressed interest, and in 1957 the program was retitled American Bandstand and shown across the U.S. and Canada.
